Structure Study V is the latest work of an on-going series called Structure Studies, which are performances and sculptural installations that explore the relationship between sound, sculptures, and histories of violence. In this work, various cheap and mass-produced wind instruments from both the east and the west are heavily manipulated and woven a large steel structure. The surface of the steel structure is treated with artificial sweat and urine to induce rust that will grow over time. The sound of the sculpture is programed to be randomized through using series of timers.
